Works for me Wednesday

Only 6 more days until the first day of school! The kids are excited...I am very exited. All the supplies and uniforms and backpacks have been purchased and we are prepared to have a great school year.

I was helping one of the teachers set up her room today and I thought of how much work they do throughout the year and just how little they get paid! And I was also thinking of how little I will probably get to help this year because I will be in school also. So here is what I was thinking I would do. Make a form for all my kids teachers to fill out with the following questions:
1. What is your favorite color?
2. What is your fav. fast food lunch and breakfast?
3. Where do you rent your movies?
4. What is your fav. beverage?
5. What is your fav. candy bar?
6. When is your birthday?
7. What is your fav. dessert?
8. What is your fav. author/books?
9. What is your fav. snack?

Then I can use this info to send the teacher a little something every once in a while, like her favorite candy bar, or maybe a McMuffin for breakfast, or a Dr. Pepper in the afternoon when I pick up the kids. It also helps to have this info around Christmas and Teacher Appreciation Week.

That's all the ideas I have for picking up little inexpensive items for the teacher...if you can think of any more ideas please share them with me in the comments! I got some of these ideas from an anonymous comment on my last blog post. (Thanks!)

I'm a special education teacher, and I have to tell you I think your idea of surprising the teacher every now and then is very sweet. Sometimes it is nice just to know you are appreciated. I've also always enjoyed homemade notes and drawings from kids. :)
